Sen. McCain pushes Watergate-style panel to investigate deaths of Americans in Benghazi
WaPo/AP ^ | 11/14/2012

Posted on 11/14/2012 5:55:41 AM PST by RoosterRedux

The Arizona Republican tells “CBS This Morning” he believes the unanswered questions surrounding events at Benghazi on Sept. 11 require such a select committee.

McCain accused the Obama administration of making misleading statements. He also said U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice went on national television and said incorrectly that the violence was the result of a demonstration against an anti-Muslim movie made in the United States. Asked if he’d stand in the way of any nomination of Rice as the next secretary of state, McCain replied, “She’s not qualified.”

Sorry Juan. This isn’t our country anymore. It belongs to Barry Benghazi and his buttboy, Eric the Holder. The good America is gone. The evil America has begun. The freeloaders and the “lady parts” voters did something no one else could do. They kicked America’s ass for their Kenyan “messiah”. There is no justice in this country anymore. “Hearings” are a waste of time.

BS A joint committee ail be limited in the witness’s that can be called because the senate is RAT. They will just limit the GOP’s question time and delay all proceedings until everyone forgets what they are about.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day! Wouldn’t it be ironic if McCain was to lead the assault on the regime? Oh well, I can dream, can’t I?

If Reid denies them, I say fine be like that dang elephant-never forget. The next election that takes the senate, start then. Never forget, never and I don’t care how long it takes—the truth will be known.

Actually, this just might be McCain’s moment. Never, ever forget he was a prisoner of war and the torture he endured for our nation.

Perfect. For Obama that is. McCain is experienced at coverup disguised as inquiry.

I noticed something in the headline radio news reports yesterday and against this morning on Fox&Friends:

When the newsies begin talking about the Petraeus situation, they frequently pronounce his name as Betraeus intermixed with Petraeus.

Are they subtly trying to say something beyond just reporting the news?

He is a POW...

I bet this has triggered some PTSD for him. I’m sure he has been sitting in the quiet of his office thinking about how long those minutes that turn to hours can be, when waiting for you countrymen to save you from the enemy.

I wonder how many servicemen and women have contacted him, how many POWs etc. over this...

I completely agree with you. Why do I feel that he purposely ran in 2008 just so he could lose?

HE owns BO’s new america.

On the other hand, maybe there will be some good to come of this.

But not holding my breath. That is better spent praying for the deceased Heroes who died for naught.

McCain could not even answer in the affirmative when asked if he would block John “Effin” Kerry for Secretary of Defense. (Fox & Friends this morning) Essentially said he needs more info! I suppose he needs more info about whether or not 1+1=2.

Exactly. And isn’t it interesting that McCain is going to get so tough after the election? What a ridiculous waste of our time.

I will never forgive him for giving away '08 with his "we don't have to be afraid of an Obama presidency" which will bring about a tortured nation. If it weren't for him, America would not be in this shape and we wouldn't be headed in a fast train to socialism and sharia law. There are many other veterans who have survived such but have more honor and love of country than to crawl into bed with our enemies.

"This could get interesting with Hillary on the other side of the table this time [She was on the Watergate investigative staff.]"

Remember also please:

1. she was thrown off of the Watergate staff for writing a brief with phony citations thta claimed that Nixon was not entitled to legal representation.

2. During "Whitewater" she consistently claimed that she "did not recall" in response to almost every question.

As an aside, has anyone seen Huma Abedin lately?

McCain is in the twilight grasping for a historical legacy, maybe in the hopes of making a name, he’ll do something useful for once. One can hope.
